The Labour of Leisure: The Culture of Free Time by Chris Rojek
English | October 16, 2009 | ISBN: 1412945534 | 216 Pages | PDF | 45 MB

It is now a school for life. In challenging the orthodox understandings of freedom and free time, The Labour of Leisure sets out an indispensable new approach to the meaning of leisure.
